I became interested in skincare later in life. In my late 30s, I stopped using the drugstore cleanser and moisturizer my mother used. My introduction to skincare was not a product or a regimen. Injectables were the subject of my blog.
As Head of Copy for Kate Somerville I am fortunate to be able to write about skincare each day. I can test every product to confidently explain how the products work, the results they achieve, and what texture you can expect from using Kate Somerville’s famous skin care products.
The estheticians of our Kate Somerville Skin Health Experts Clinic in Los Angeles have taught me how to care for my dry, aging skin. Kate, our founder, has taught me the best morning and night skincare routines that follow Kate’s five daily do’s. Here is my whole skincare routine.
CleanseThis morning, I use Cleanser, which cleanses and exfoliates lightly, improving the appearance of pores and boosting radiance. This daily face cleanser contains powerful AHAs (Glycolic Acid and lactic Acid) and Fruit Enzymes, naturally exfoliating skin without irritation. Then, at night, I use a hydrating goat milk cleanser. This is great for moisturizing my dry skin. The Kate Somerville clinic nurse who gave him his first consultation recommended the Goat Milk Cleanser to my husband for his oily skin.
My husband uses the more gentle a data-link-label=”10295_Master” data-link type=”product” data product id=”10295_Master”>Liquid ExfoliKate ™ at night and loves it! My husband loves the liquid ExfoliKate ™ he uses at night on his skin. The two products are formulated with AHAs but in different forms depending on whether or not you want a super-effective exfoliation.
What product do I like the best in Kate’s skincare line? And what has been the most significant change in my skin ever since using it? DermalQuench Liquid Lift(tm). Oxygen, a popular treatment in the clinic, inspires the liquid lift. The aerosol canister version is a spray that combines Hyaluronic acid and Oxygen to plump, firm, and give you a dewy glow. I use DermalQuench every morning and night… and spray a little magic before my afternoon video call to look radiant.
The age repair angels are here! Kate’s age-repair collection KateCeuticals (TM) was launched in 2021, and I haven’t looked back. KateCeuticals ™ firming serum and total repair cream are mixed morning and night. It’s been clinically proven that when used together, they improve the appearance and firmness of skin after one week. What is the secret behind KateCeuticals(tm), comprehensive age repair? Peptides! Kate and her team have formulated this collection using Peptides to perform specific age-repair tasks. These include improving elasticity, firming, smoothing, or enhancing texture. Retinol, Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, and Ceramides are the skin-transforming ingredients in the age repair line.
As for results, I pat a tiny amount of KateCeuticals ™ lifting eye cream on the area around my eyes and lips if there is any extra. In my Kate Somerville blog, I mentioned that my under-eye site is where I see the most visible signs of aging. I appreciate the support under-eye serums and creams provide me between clinic visits. The Triple Peptide Complex visibly reduces wrinkles and fine lines while increasing firmness and elasticity.
Protect yourself from harm.
Did you know the sun is responsible for 80% of visible signs of aging? It makes you reconsider the notion that SPF only applies to beach days! After my morning skincare routine and using any makeup, I use Kate’s mineral sunblock Daily deflector(tm). The sunscreen also protects the skin from blue light and restores it. The non-greasy, light formula absorbs into the skin beautifully. It doesn’t leave a greasy residue. My husband is happy about that.
I have been implementing my skincare routine at home and love how my skin feels and looks daily. As I get older, I am more confident in my skin.
